Why getting back with an ex is a TERRIBLE idea
I don't have to tell you that getting back together with an ex is a bad idea right? Like, you already know that they're an ex for a reason, heck, they are probably your ex for MANY reasons! However, time and emotional distance have a tendency to make us filter the past through rose-colored glasses and for some reason, we seem to forget all the crappy things exes have done and what terrible people they actually were. Don't let your dumb mind fool you! Remember, THEY ARE AN EX FOR A REASON. But, to further solidify why you shouldn't get back with an ex, let me offer the following:
You're both different people now- you can't recreate the "magic" so to speak. You are in different places. Getting back together doesn't mean everything will fall back into place, it'll just be weird and awkward.
Some things DON'T change- some things do change, others do not. If your ex wouldn't change for you when you were together, why would they now? The more some things change, the more they stay the same. The underlying issues you had with each other will ALWAYS be there
It prevents you from meeting someone new- you can't move on when you're stuck in the past. If you're still messing with your ex, you will never fully open the door for someone new, possibly missingout on great relationship opportunities
You'd never feel secure with that person- no matter how good your breakup was, it eroded your trust and that can't be resolved
The fact is, you ALREADY know it's a bad idea to get back with your ex, but if you need even MORE reasons, you can see them here
